What is Propylene Carbonate?

Cyclic carbonates consist of five-membered rings, six-membered rings, seven-membered ring carbonates, and also macrocyclic carbonates with greater than seven-membered rings, among which propylene carbonate as well as ethylene carbonate are the most commonly made use of. Ethylene carbonate is an outstanding polar high-boiling point solvent as well as surfactant resources, commonly made use of in plastics, printing and also dyeing, polymer synthesis, gas splitting up and also electrochemistry and also other areas. In South Korea, ethylene carbonate is directly used to remove acid gases (carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, etc.) in natural gas; in Western Europe and Japan, a large amount of ethylene carbonate is used to replace acrylamide, urea system and water glass as concrete engineering A pollution-free soil stabilizer.

In recent years, foreign countries have developed processes for synthesizing dimethyl carbonate, ethylene glycol, and functional polymers with ethylene carbonate as raw materials, and used it in polymer modification, demonstrating its wide application in the field of organic synthesis. A potential organic chemical basic raw material. Propylene carbonate is an excellent organic solvent and fine chemical synthesis intermediate, which can be used to absorb carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide in natural gas and synthetic ammonia feed gas.

In recent years, many domestic urea manufacturers have adopted propylene carbonate as the solvent for urea decarburization, so the demand for propylene carbonate has greatly increased. Propylene carbonate is used as battery electrolyte, which can withstand light, heat and chemical changes under harsh conditions. In addition, it is a good solvent for extracting petroleum components, raw lacquer, plasticizer and other insoluble substances, and it is also a raw material for producing dimethyl carbonate by transesterification.

Propylene Carbonate Uses

  1. Propylene carbonate is a high-efficiency desulfurization and decarbonization solvent, which can be used for natural gas filtration and ammonia synthesis feed gas purification, as well as has an important possibility in reducing greenhouse gas exhausts. It can additionally be made use of in plasticizers, spinning solvents, color dispersants, etc, as well as can also be made use of in second-generation lithium-ion batteries as an electrolyte to protect graphite anodes. Its broader usage is also timber adhesives, which can be utilized as a basic material for the manufacturing of an additional chemical product, dimethyl carbonate. In the electronic devices industry, it can be used as a superb medium for high-energy batteries as well as capacitors. In the polymer market, it can be made use of as a solvent as well as plasticizer for polymers; as a plasticizer for adhesives and sealers; and also as a curing accelerator for phenolic resins. and dispersant for water-soluble sticky pigments and fillers. In the chemical market, it is the primary basic material for the synthesis of dimethyl carbonate, and also it can additionally be utilized to remove carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide from natural gas as well as oil cracking gas. Additionally, it can also be used in textile, printing as well as dyeing and also other industrial fields.
  2. Propylene carbonate is utilized as oily solvent, rotating solvent, olefin, aromatic hydrocarbon extractant, co2 absorptive, dispersant for water-soluble dyes as well as pigments, and so on.
  3. Propylene carbonate is a polar solvent used as a plasticizer, spinning solvent, water-soluble dye and also dispersant for plastics. It can additionally be used as an oily solvent as well as a removal representative for olefins and aromatics. Propylene carbonate as the electrolyte of the battery can hold up against severe light, heat and chemical modifications. It also has specific applications in geological mineral processing as well as logical chemistry. On top of that, propylene carbonate can additionally change phenolic material as a wood adhesive, as well as is likewise made use of to synthesize dimethyl carbonate.

Propylene Carbonate Application

Propylene carbonate is a high-boiling and highly polar organic solvent with excellent performance, and is also an important organic chemical. It has been widely used in organic synthesis, gas separation, battery dielectric, and metal extraction. It can be used as a plasticizer, a spinning solvent, a dispersant for water-soluble dyes and pigments, an oily solvent, an extractant for olefins and aromatics, a decarbonization solvent in nitrogen fertilizer production, and used in second-generation lithium-ion batteries As the electrolyte to protect the graphite anode, if there is research and development of an electrolyte with propylene carbonate as the main solvent, the electrolyte with propylene carbonate as the main solvent involves lithium-ion battery electrolyte.

Contains lithium salts, organic solvents and additives; organic solvents include propylene carbonate and chain carbonates; additives include film-forming additive A and additive B to inhibit propylene carbonate co-embedding; the composition by mass percentage is lithium salt 10%~18 %, propylene carbonate is 25%~60%, chain carbonate is 15%~60%, additive A is 0.5%~5%, additive B is 0.1%~10%. Using sulfite as an additive for lithium-ion battery electrolyte, because sulfite has a higher reduction potential, which is higher than the decomposition potential of propylene carbonate, during the first charging process, sulfite is decomposed before propylene carbonate A stable and dense SEI film is formed on the graphite surface, which effectively inhibits the propylene carbonate solvent from co-intercalating into the graphite layer along with lithium ions, and effectively improves the initial discharge capacity and cycle life of the battery.

In addition, propylene carbonate is also an efficient desulfurization and decarbonization (carbon dioxide) solvent, which is used in industrial sectors such as natural gas purification, ammonia raw material gas purification and hydrogen production. Another new use of it is for wood bonding, for example, it is mixed with isocyanate in a certain proportion as a wood adhesive. In recent years, using propylene carbonate and methanol to carry out transesterification reaction to synthesize dimethyl carbonate, dimethyl carbonate can be prepared from propylene carbonate. Because dimethyl carbonate has a wide range of uses and a large demand, this also indirectly Broaden the use of propylene carbonate.
